    Other than a few jumps here and there, my .CAs have been extremely slow in 2019.

    My thoughts are that a lot of businesses are tightening their belts (especially small business after Trudeau jacked them hard on taxes) so there's not a lot of time or money left to pursue domain upgrades.

    And keep an eye on those tricky 3-character ones like:

    sc1.ca
    vm1.ca
    yy1.ca

    The CIRA site font makes the 1's look like l's - SC1.ca caught me for a second.

    Just went back and it was @Violets where I had the issue and as well as with one other.

    NamesPro was sooooooooooo slow on the transfer code.

    Come to think of it I have not seen @Violets around lately, I hope he is doing all right.

    My phone is encrypted, I have a long access code, I use two factor, I use an authenticator program, that program is also protected by an access code. I monitor my domains daily in my control panel.

    Nobody is getting my domains because even with all that security it is a matter of looking to see the domain count. If it varies by even one then I am on it and the best time to stop fraud is the moment it happens.

    Additionally I get emailed with any account change.

    Like you said, nothing is 100% but I'm confident I am at about 99.9%

    There are a few others that stood out, and some of the LLLs are nicely aged.

    But definitely not a premium week by any stretch.

    You were actually dead-on with this comment, as there is not another 1-word domain that I would remotely classify as premium.

    This is a really sucky week.

    Damn, I had my fingers crossed that we'd get another .CA on the ccTLD list, but alas...

    Click to see .DE and .IO Smoke .CA

    Didn't get anything this week - went for TKA.ca, but MyID got it, went for Pharaoh.ca, but MyID got it. Had a couple that I was thinking of going cheap on but lost track of time - both taken late.

    I was right, this was a sucky week.

    That is the actual name of the dealership,

    and it gets better yet, for email they use...

    [email protected]

    Now note...... it is not a .ca and it's a very sloppy shortening.

    They are actually called

    Mercedes-Benz Kitchener-Waterloo

    I am just in the process of buying my new Mercedes there.

    I know, but it looks like an old 2001 keyword-stuffed, hyphenated monstrosity deep from the bowels of the Internet.

    Pardon my ignorance. I'm not familiar with the phrase. Can you clarify?

    Missed that - congrats.

    I'm strictly an SUV guy and I don't really feel comfortable with that much money in the driveway, so I settled on a Audio Q7 6-cylinder (Black) and it's a nice concession.

    Some interesting reading from strategyonline.ca

    "Digital transformation hindered by short-term goals

    A global Dentsu survey of CMOs reveals a gap between chief marketers' priorities and their ability to deliver on them.

    A new Dentsu Aegis Network survey of global CMOs suggests a significant gap exists between the number of marketers who believe in the importance of digital transformation and the number who have the resources to implement change.

    A total of 1,000 CMOs across ten different markets responded to Dentsu’s survey in May. The need to drive transformation through digital is recognized as imperative by 80% of the marketers surveyed, who also believe they should focus more heavily on product and service innovation over the next two or three years.

    But the agency network’s survey reveals of number of challenges for chief marketers, namely gaps between what they view as important for the future and their ability to execute on those priorities.

    For instance, 85% said they believe creativity is critical to future business success, while only 54% believe they are delivering well today. A similar discrepancy was found between the importance given to customer experience and commerce across channels, with 83% believing it’s important and only 60% believing they are on their way to delivering on that goal.

    The largest gap, however, concerns data management and analytics, which 84% of CMOs view as important for future success, but only 49% feel confident in their current capabilities.

    One of the obstacles for CMOs appears to be budgetary, as many of the ones surveyed report feeling pressured to deliver on short-term over more long-term results. An “inability to secure long-term investment” was ranked as a top-three concern among half of all CMOs surveyed, outranking both access to talent and “competing boardroom agendas.”

    Globally, 41% of respondents predict their budgets will flatline or decline over the next year, even though 64% expect to see revenue growth over the same period. And 64% also said they anticipate coming under further pressure to demonstrate short-term results, with almost half of all CMOs revealing their marketing strategies already only extend to two years or less, “reflecting a business focus on near-term goals,” according to Dentsu."


    My takeaway is that the CMO's need to show some kind of substantial return within 2 years of every campaign or dollar spent. Their CEO or Board is evaluating their performance quarter by quarter. That's a lot of pressure.
